According to “Florian Kainz, Software Engineer, Google Daydream”, said I thought the photo of the moonlit landscape came out well so I showed it to my (then) teammates in Gcam, a Google Research team that focuses on computational photography – developing algorithms that assist in taking pictures, usually with smartphones and similar small cameras. Seeing my nighttime photo (see image here), one of the Gcam team members challenged me to re-take it, but with a phone camera instead of a DSLR. Even though cameras on cellphones have come a long way, I wasn’t sure whether it would be possible to come close to the DSLR shot.

Probably the most successful Gcam project to date is the image processing pipeline that enables the HDR+ mode in the camera app on Nexus and Pixel phones.

When the shutter button is pressed the app waits a few seconds and then records up to 64 frames with the selected settings. The app saves the raw frames captured from the sensor as DNG files, which can later be downloaded onto a PC for processing. Trying to find out if phone cameras might be suitable for outdoor nighttime photography was a fun experiment, and
